Baked Custard Recipe at
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Butter a 1-quart baking dish and place it in a roasting pan which has enough hot water to come halfway up the side of the baking dish. Place in the oven to heat.

Combine the eggs, egg yolks and sugar, and whisk until thick and pale.

Heat the milk to boiling point and slowly add to the egg mixture, stirring constantly. Stir in the vanilla. Strain through a sieve into the baking dish and sprinkle with nutmeg. Place in the roasting pan and bake for 45 minutes, until set.

The custard is set when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Just like mom used to make!
My husband asked me to make an egg custard for dessert. I found this recipe and followed it as written. It came out just perfect and my husband said it tasted just like the custard his mom used to make, quite a compliment! I have made this several times since February and have served it with a good vanilla ice cream and homemade whipped cream with a sprinkle of fresh nutmeg (my favorite). If you are looking for an easy, nostalgic dessert, this fits the bill.
